I saw Allison and Grady play their Challange matches twice.
Here is a website for the results. http://www.billiardsdigest.com/mainevent/grudgematch/
I know this is an exihibition match and it wasn't true PRO tournament conditions.

But each time I saw these matches, Grady was far superior in the approach to the game than Ms. Fisher.
Ms. Fisher is a fantastic shot maker and played extremely well and kept all the matches close.
But Grady is 60 years old... and isn't even rated in the top 50 pros.

Hmm, Tom, while we are discussing the subject of women pros playing male pros, you might wish to consider Karen Corr's recent Joss Tour results.

Stop 13: 4th Place
Stop 14: 7th Place
Stop 15: 2nd Place
Stop 16: 9th Place
Stop 18: 7th Place

The Joss Tour does not provide anyone with an easy opportunity for a tournament win. Ask Mika Immonen about that. Corr's Joss record includes a win over Immonen, a top male player at the top of his game.

Tom, keep in mind these matches were from four years ago. If the exhibition were done today, I think Allison would probably have the edge. Her game has improved dramatically; she's now a 9-ball player.

Even though she was winning WPBA tournaments at that time, the competition was nothing like it is now. She was able to win - then - with her shotmaking alone. The fact that she's still a dominant force on the tour is a tribute to how much her game has improved.
